Hi Janey, imagine making your home out of the shipping container though.
Audrey, we must have just missed each other! Was reading that there are around 4,000 that live on the island in small homes. They often make them from shipping containers! I'm still intrigued they fact that one could feel at home on a bit of rock in the ocean! Was reading reviews of one of the restaurants there. Had no idea.
I've just seen a couple of chaps making sure the grass is neat for our virtual picnic Janey & Gwynn - we can but dream! It is nice to see this again.
Hi Audrey & Gwynn -- we have not had this cam in a bit, so I guess the picnic has/was delayed ? :))) The remoteness of this place fascinates me. Likely dependent on the outside for everything! No just going to the grocery store on a whim. Cannot imagine this tiny speck of land being "home."
Thanks Gwynn, no rush - don't forget to bring some food - think Janey will be with us.
Easter Island is one of the most remote inhabited islands in the world.The nearest inhabited land (around 50 residents in 2013) is Pitcairn Island, 2,075 kilometres (1,289 mi) away. *WikipediaOn my way to the picnic, Audrey! But it may take me a while to get there. :)
28jan18-- Easter Island's Moai statues : They stand with their backs to the sea and are believed by most archaeologists to represent the spirits of ancestors, chiefs, or other high-ranking males who held important positions in the history of Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, the name given by the indigenous people to their island.
Waving back Janey, I've spread a tablecloth on the grass for a picnic - you're all welcome to join me in this lovely setting - better bring some food with you as well.
Waving to Gwynn, Gert, Audrey and others -- Vanja, I am wondering the same as you. What must it be like to see this wonderful place in person. All those mystical statues. I see people walking around. Wondering if the large ships dock and let passengers tour the island.
Can you imagine to be here, so far away of the rest of the world. It's so warm, nice, beautiful, relaxing. Little bit windy, so the waves are getting bigger. Eternal Enchantment Cruise ship is enjoying the view from the opposite side :)
I stopped by here the other night when it was nearly dark. The statues standing overlooking the approach, just discernible in relief, with several boats lit out in the water, was amazing.
31dec17-- A Thank You to our host, Te Moai Sunset, for sponsoring this 'live cam' view of Easter Island's Moai statues, spectacular.
